Broadbeach Waters, Australia
October 27, 2005
The rooms were not large but clean and comfortable, with hot water and air-conditioning. The room that we were shown was smallish but at least the air-conditioning unit was large enough to keep it cool. They still had the Cambodian touches with the traditional woven bed covers and prints on the wall.
Geared to the traveller, the hotel offered many free services where in other hotels you normally needed to pay. These included airport pickup, Internet facilities, tea, coffee, and fruit, plus a reasonably priced laundry service. Breakfast was not included in the rate but started at $2.50 for a French style breakfast of fried egg, toast, fruit salad and tea or coffee or $2.80 for a Phnom Penh consisting of an omelette, fruit, tea or coffee and so on. Prices are reasonable enough when you take into account all the extras that are included in the tariff.
The staff was really helpful. Although we didn’t stay, they were more than happy to show us a room. It was not quite up to the same standard as they show on their website but it may have been their worst room in the house or the only one they had available.
The location is probably not as good as the Bopha Angkor as it is located on the other side of the Old Market.
As their advertising states, it's four-star accommodation at a two-star rate, and it certainly looked like it to me.
